Pearland

While just a hop, skip and a short commute from all Houston has to offer, Shadow Creek Ranch is officially located within the city limits of Pearland, Texas.

Pearland became a siding switch on the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway in 1882. The community was first named Mark Belt, when a post office was established in 1893. The name was changed to Pearland in November of that year because of the abundance of pear trees in the community.

Today, Pearland is a the fastest growing suburb of Houston and 34th fastest in the nation (Forbes, July 2007), Pearland is ideally located minutes away from downtown Houston, the world-renowned Texas Medical Center, two major ports and Hobby Airport.

Quality of Life

When you choose Pearland, you are choosing the perfect place for growing businesses and families. The relaxed family environment fosters a "hometown" community where local retailers know your name, where the crime rate is low, where your children get a great education, and where families can run and play in lush neighborhoods and parks.

On the other hand, you are within minutes of the big-city amenities of Houston, the 4th largest city in the United States, where you can experience the world's finest attractions, entertainment, sporting, dining, cultural and educational amenities. With everything Pearland has to offer, it's no wonder that we have tripled our growth since 1990.
